I also have deadlines to meet and I have completed another Sushi quilt, with one more to finish and that is well under way. I have a few more decisions to make for the final piece so a little more staring and auditioning is still needed.
This latest addition to the series is 'Sushi'. It continues with the same dye painted sushi shapes quilted with irregular lines of machine quilting using a variegated thread. The green section is quilted with a list of ingredients used in the making of sushi - rather appetising I think!
As you can see in this close up I have embellished the background with some small double-sided squares continuing with the wasabi green and pickled ginger pink colour scheme.
The group project that I spoke about in my last blog is finished. All of the blocks have been trimmed, stitched together, extra stitches added to blend the individual sections and finally faced.
It is 70 inches long so pinning it to the door to the garage was the only option I could think of so that I could photograph it. I'm very pleased with the result and will be delivering it tomorrow so that it can hang with the other quilts at Fiona's fund raising open garden next Sunday. I hope to get there and if I do I promise you some photographs of the other quilts. It should be a stunning display.
The next pressing deadline is my 'create' book for the Beauty of Books exhibition at Weaver's Gallery in Ledbury at the beginning of July. I have another half a dozen small blocks to make before I can put together my book. More of this next time.
Hope you are all having a creative time and meeting your deadlines too!
Speak to you soon
